BREWER, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It's not everyday that young athletes have hundreds of people cheering them on as they aim to cross the finish line. For many of them - and the volunteers that spent the day tagging along, it's not about the color of the ribbons they won, but they journey and friendships they made along the way.
More than 500 athletes from Penobscot, Piscatquis and Hancock counties participated in Wednesday's Special Olympics in Brewer. Many of them say it was a great experience, as well as a chance to see a lot of their friends.
"I'm glad everybody's here to cheer me on," says Molly Berry.
